Out-of-Court Settlements2017-05-19T13:20:38+00:00
Our reputation is also based on our success to reach amicable solutions in complex cases. As evident from press articles, press releases, annual reports and public statements by defendants, CDC has achieved multiple out-of-court settlements with several cartel members in the Hydrogen Peroxide, Paraffin Wax and Sodium Chlorate cases. This resulted in significant compensation payments to the companies which had assigned their claims to CDC.

Understanding the process of achieving settlements

We have significant experience and broad knowledge in achieving successful resolutions in cartel damage actions. Through all our Europe-wide cases we established a deep understanding of both the legal and strategic aspects involved in complex settlement processes resulting in multimillion Euro compensation for cartel victims.

The settlements also take account of the justified interest of the settling cartel member to put an end to the litigation and be protected from successful contribution proceedings by the remaining defendants.
